Has anyone else had problems with the steering knuckle screws? For some reason, they just won't go in right, and keep falling out during races. I've gone through a couple of sets of the steering screws/collars, plus a new knuckle, and the big thing I notice is that with the collar in, the bottom screw on the right knuckle won't go in all the way. This only ever happens on the right side. Any help?

(Sorry for the huge bump)

haha thanks. It's a new knuckle i'm trying to install, so there's definitely no loctite. It actually feels like the bottomw screw isn't picking up the threads in the knuckle when the collar is installed. Maybe i'll just ditch the collar or something.

It might work if you can get the d8 mud gaurds on there... D8 body will bulge out if not... as the lightning is wider at its midpoint...
